Today's "dot and line" tools in the edit applet should be replaced 
with one street tool, one railroad tool, and one canal tool.  
Canals can be drawn in blue instead of white.  Railroads should be 
drawn either in dashed white-and-black or lines with cross dashes.
This way, contributors don't have to draw lines first and later 
tag them, but the tags can be there from the start.
